wolffe nbc political analyst and executive editor of msnbc.com. ron, we noticed eric cantor voted against the speaker's deal with the president. are there republicans who want to see him oust mr. boehner from the speaker's chair as well? >> well, martin, i always like to save some breaking news for you when i come on. >> i'm grateful to you for that. >> i have huge breaking news tonight. there are serious rumors that at the conference tonight at 5:00 john boehner will announce that he's resigning as speaker of the house. there are multiple senior sources that i have talked to tonight that have said that this is going to happen. >> ron, i wouldn't wish to question your sanity, but i find that very hard to believe. >> i know. listen, i find it hard to believe. i was put at a one in four chance today we'd be able to kick him out today. there are a serious group of members thinking about it. >> do they have someone as an alternative in mind. >> eric cantor is probably the one. >> is this a coup? >> i don't have any evidence. >> you have to put evidence forward. you put forth a rumor. sub shan
has the inside track. >> let's do something more topical, which is john boehner and eric cantor. the atmosphere up on capitol hill has been like the roman senate for a long time now. these folks working together in leadership, but even over a year ago, politico was running an article saying boehner and eric cantor call for a truce, talking about a year of behind the scenes bitter fighting. their staffs were trying to find a way to work together. speaker vote is coming up january 3rd. boehner had a bad beating in the plan "b" vote. you don't think this is going to get better, do you? >> the main thing he has going for him in that rivalry is he has the worst job in the world. >> really, the worst job? >> certainly the worst job in congress. basically, speaker boehner has to sit there and eat a lot of stuff that you wouldn't necessarily eat because there are a lot of republicans who basically want to emote, they want to act up. and speaker boehner just has to take it and try to hammer deals. and eric cantor goes into his role, he has to do the same thing boehner has to do. >> the s
had from both the speaker and the majority leader eric cantor are iron clad. i think we're going to proceed. and i think that this recognizes the heartache and misery that both of our states, the region have suffered as a -- it has been as the governor emphasized, governor christie and in his press conference within the last hour or two, it has been over 66 days. i think it is about time congress responded. i'm pleased that the speaker and the majority leader have listened to our pleas. >> why not have voted on the senate bill and have it all done today? >> that was our hope, but, you know, it will happen. that's the bottom line. and it will happen at the amount that we think is required to meet the legitimate needs of the people of new jersey, new york and points north. >> we asked congressman king, the speaker tell you the reason why he abruptly yanked this from the calendar? >> as peter probably said, he alluded to the fact that there was so much going on, but did not give a specific reason. you might want to ask him that. for us, it is about getting critical aid to people who
. then had you majority leader eric cantor and republican whip kevin mccarthy who voted no. cantor said he was disappointed with the bill. here's how it was sold to republicans. >> so by making republican tax cuts permanent, we're one step closer to comprehensive tax reform that will help strengthen our economy and create more and higher paychecks for american workers. >> what's interesting is with a lot of big bills you see the speaker get up and try to fire up his troops to vote for it you will see the majority leader eric cantor try to get up and fire up the base to vote for it. in this case, it was left to the chairman of the house ways and means committee, dave camp. jon? >> jon: not a lot of holiday cheer among two of the most powerful people on the hill. >> that's right. you could definitely feel the tension going higher and higher the closer it got to the deadline. last friday at the white house, fox news has confirmed speaker john boehner told senate majority leader harry reid to, quote: f himself twice after reid had said boehner was running the house like a dictatorship and sai
and will do it. a lot of people looked at that and said is there a rift, is this eric cantor positioning himself for a coup. i think that's fairly unlikely. the house speaker boehner certainly has plenty of support going into his election tomorrow where he's expected to be reelected the speaker of the house when the 113th congress convenes. so i think folks are reading a little into that. but certainly it was eric cantor being a little who are conservatives. >> many are very angry about this deal. we saw this tweet from the tea party expression, amy cramer said i'm disgusted with what happened in the house last night. there will be consequences. what will the blow back be, do you think? >> in the short term, i don't think there's much at all. and certainly many folks believe that the tea party may be losing steam if anything under this new deal. but remember, as brianna pointed out, we'll be back here again in march. you have the debt limit, the government maxed out its credit card december 31st. treasury is now taking extraordinary measures for the government to pay its bills. you have
is john boehner and eric cantor. even politico was saying a year ago they call for a truce, their staffs were trying to find a way to work together. speaker vote is coming up january 3rd. boehner had a bad beating in that plan b vote. >> i think the main thing that boehner has going for him in the rivalry is he has the worst job in the world. >> is it really the worst job in the world? >> certainly the worst job in congress. speaker boehner has to sit there and eat a lot of stuff you wouldn't necessarily want to eat because there are a lot of republicans who basically want to emote, they want to act up and speaker boehner just has to take it and try to hammer deal and eric cantor, if he goes into boehner's role, he has to do the same thing boehner wants to do. >> the starting quarterback hates the number two quarterback and boehner, if he was smart, he should have dispatched him a long time ago and said, young man, i'm going to put you out to pasture if you pull that crap on me again. he made a mistake over the debt ceiling. >> the two of them are working very closely during the negotiat
, eric cantor says we have no paper so there is nothing to sign off on. interesting to watch the dynamic. if this gets through the senate and moves to the house of representatives because the house democrats there are not going to want to care relationship all of the water on this. the house republicans are in charge in the house of representatives. and there is still some selling as you say that has to be done to senate democrats. i'm told by a spokesman to mitch mcconnell, don stewart told me that biden will probably meet with mcconnell later on here. when asked when there would be a vote. he said awhile. sounds like if there is going to be a vote in the senate tonight or tomorrow morning it will still be hours and don stewart said it always takes a little longer here in the senate. >> bret: and it does. what about just for folks who don't perhaps know the logistics and parliamentary procedures not to get too in the weeds about senate parliamentary maneuvers but tell them how this will go once they get a piece of legislation that they will bring it to the floor and how they will move i
a primary challenger. speaker boehner, eric cantor have not been overly supportive so far. they reserve the right to amend it. there are three options. we could all hold hands and jump off into the deep end together. that would be the house republican conference approving of this bill, at least enough of them joining the democrats to move it forward. you could also see house republicans try to amend it. that's what tom cole is talking about on your air. he doesn't think that would happen and doesn't want that to happen but it certainly is a possibility if some conservative house republicans say we don't like this part of the deal let's send it back over to the senate. that puts us in sort of a chaos with so little time. today is a free day. the markets close. what happens tomorrow if there is still not a fiscal deal in place? lastly if there is an all out rejection all bets are off, we're jumping over the fiscal cliff. it is up to john boehner to gauge how his conference is going to react to this bill and from folks i've talked to there is a little bit of nervousness among house republi
before breaking pieces and catching on fire. gregg: new videotape shoug house majority leader eric cantor arriving at capitol hill. he really didn't say much of anything. he was asked what's going on, is there a deal? he basically said, happy new year, happy new year, happy new year three times. and the senate is not convening until about 11:00 a.m.. it may not be officially reconvening but just meeting. that was the time that harry reid said it would happen. tony sayegh, former press aide to gop vice-presidential nominee jack kemp and national political correspondent for talk radio news service. kirsten powers, columnist for "the daily beast" and fox news contributor. questions ten, you said the president will come out getting most he what he wants. how do you figure that? >> well the main thing that the president wanted and what he really ran on during the entire campaign was raising taxes on people who make over $250,000. it's possible that threshold could move a little bit. the president put about the a week or two ago 400,000 threshold on the table. sew we could see something that go
boehner and majority leader eric cantor walking in a republican conference meeting together. a show of solidarity, perhaps, after cantor came out against the bill that passed the senate this morning. looking live outside the meeting now. tonight on "special report," g.o.p. lawmakers are suggesting they may amend that bill and send it back to the senate. we'll explain what that means when we have live reports on both sides of pennsylvania avenue. potennial market reaction to the late moves. at the white house, president obama's plane but gassed up and ready to go back to hawaii. but with no vote and no communication with boehner, what now? "special report" from washington with all the fiscal cliff latest starts at 6:00. now back to "the five." ♪ ♪ ♪ >> juan: getting redty to party. the last segment we took a look at the serious moments on "the five" this year. now let's get to the good stuff. roll the tape. ♪ notice >> are we non- >> bob. >> sorry. ♪ ♪ notice ♪ ♪ >> hostess brand maker of twinkies. [ laughter ] >> lockness monster was a hoax. >> what? that is a hoax?
. the speaker voted for the package, as did house budget chairman paul ryan. majority leader eric cantor and republican whip but against it. with the speaker facing reelection tomorrow, many frustrated conservatives are still saying he did his job. >> the speakers showed at a time which harry reid went home and went to bed and left its the vice-president. at least the speaker was always straight, honest with us, and allow the regular process to occur. >> at the white house last friday fox news confirmed the speaker told read to go left himself twice after reading accused him of running the house like a dictatorship and being more concerned about saving his own job and getting a deal. republican sources say that is likely to boost the stock with conservatives. lou: thank you very much. fox news chief congressional correspondent. our first guest tonight voted against the fiscal cliff deal in the house and says it's just another deal by washington insiders with no real solutions and points to a lack of courage and will in washington. he also rallied opposition against the speaker's plan the
minute. eric cantor did. stan hoyer among others not happy. >> i am deeply disappointed mr. speaker, and the people who have been damaged by hurricane sandy, including governor chris christie and governor cuomo, should be deeply disappointed and yes, angry, that this congress would adjourn without addressing the pain of our fellow citizens. >> bill: it is outrageous -- i have not been there personally but seen so much video of the horrific destruction in parts of new york and new jersey -- >> that is still there, yeah. >> bill: yeah, people still suffering, and the congress just basically saying, we don't care about this. >> yeah, it's just the house, right? because the senate had actually done some stuff, and had planned to come back one more day and deal with what the house passed and in the midst of all of this stuff at the last minute they just pulled it off of the agenda. and it was a bipartisan anger at the house leadership last night when that happened. >> bill: eleanor holmes norton representing the district of columbia will be joining us in studio abou
with the speaker, but they're not willing to run against him. you have big names like eric cantor and kevin mccarthy, number two and three, they're not even making noises about challenging boehner. so i think boehner come next month he's pretty safe even though right now he's having a tough time controlling his caucus. >> not only that, boehner was smart in bringing cantor and mccarthy and paul ryan into the fold when he introduced plan "b." did he that strategically so it looked like a united front. he still got undercut. he will probably be re-elected speaker but he is a much more ineffectual speaker after what happened. >> sam, give me a snap prediction. what do you think the president will say in the briefing room today? >> he's going to wish everyone a happy new year and then say -- i don't know. i have no idea. things are changing by a minute-to-minute basis. i have a guess he will probably say this ball is now in the senate's court. he's going to encourage them to get something done and put the weight of the presidency behind it. >> okay. thanks sam stein and robert costa, appreciate th
than the senate which passed a measure by an 89-8 vote. eric cantor was among the republicans opposing the deal. in the end, supporters won the vote. >>> taxes will remain the same for 98% of americans. they will go up for those making $400,000 and couples who make more than $450,000 a year. spending cuts were postponed for two months, which means we could be going through a similar debate before spring. president obama says he supports a balanced approach to reducing our deficit. >> we can't simply cut our way to prosperity. cutting spending has to go hand in hand with further reform tax code. the wealthiest corporations and individuals. can't take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren't available to most americans. >> get ready for another fiscal debate in the coming months. congress and the white house will talk about the debt ceiling. we could reach the limit by the end of february. and won't likely agree to raising it without guarantees of spending cuts. despite this bill, you may notice your paycheck is a little smaller this year. that's because a temporary cut in a pay
it and send it back is what eric cantor and others wanted. the problem with sending it back is there would be no one to send it to. the senate left the building. the house would have gone back and said we're going to keep our apbldz in. what speaker boehner did is join the minority of republicans. he voted, so 85 republicans said yes, but 172 said no. essentially they violated their own unwritten hastert rule and used the majority of democrats to pass this bill. longtime conservatives see it as a rau for the president. >>steve: even in the leadership of the republican party you've got john boehner and paul ryan voting for it. then you've got eric cantor, the majority whip, voting against it. at the core, all the republicans had to hold their nose because they do not as a party like the idea of taxes going up on anybody. now the way it stands is if you are very successful and you make at least $400,000 a year, your taxes are going to go up to about 40%. for everybody watching this program now, your payroll taxes are going up. last year it was about 4.2% exactly, and starting this morning it
to me. and it says, you know, exactly -- >> even though eric cantor was right there probably helping him out? >> but that's the thing is he had eric cantor there, which should have given him the cover. now, you know, at some point john boehner has to make a decision, which is do i let these people dictate what type of legislation we're going to put to this body, or will i get rid of this informal role that anything i let come to a vote has to have the majority of the majority, which means that a majority of republicans have to vote on the bill for it to pass. because that's really the only resolution to this deal is can he -- will he pass a deal that will have a lot of democratic support in the house? >> and is, as i look at next week and the fiscal cliff presumably happening, going over it, john boehner is supposed to be re-elected speaker on next thursday. >> on the 3rd, yeah. >> is that going to change everything and he's going to say, to hell with this right-wing tail wagging my dog, i don't need you guys anymore? >> no, because the house isn't the only theater of this. there's the s
eric cantor was with him all along, still is, and they're pointing the finger of blame at speaker john boehner, openly encouraging the idea that there's a rift between the two. >> there's a squabble, obviously, between speaker boehner and leader cantor, they voted separately on the fiscal cliff. since cantor had taken a lead role here some have speculated that boehner wasn't as friendly to it as he might have otherwise been. >> reporter: cantor's office tells me that the two are in communication and that cantor support the speaker boehner. the two are scheduled to meet with the new york and new jersey delegations to discuss sandy aid in less than an hour, megyn. >> megyn: shannon, thank you. >> we're going to hit every single recommendation that's been put forward. some individuals have been held accountable inside of the state department and what i've said is that we are going to fix this to make sure that this does not happen again. because these are folks that i send into the field. we understand that there are dangers involved, but you know, when he read the report and it confirms
, outmaneuvered, outcreated and if they don't, the, this eric cantor. he decides he is voting no. part of the leadership. lori: not until there were enough yes votes to get requisite approval for the deal. melissa: what would your advice be? >> i think republicans would he will be well-served to discover if they are a political party or simply a fund-raising origination and a branding mechanism. because they seem to have no ground operation which is essential if you will be a political party and you're going to it up candidates for president. they don't seem to have any principles they won't abandon. they seem to have no vision they will share with the rest of us. you i think they're really at cliff, they're at the precipice no longer being a relevant political party. lori: that is huge statement, lou. melissa: could they use the opportunity, whether the debt ceiling or --. lori: sorry to come in but the social issues. you know what i mean. do they need to do better job connecting with the general public on social side of things, gay marriage, abortion, stem cell research? >> actually
if someone to his right, that caucus shrinks more. >> clayton: and some-- >> you've heard paul ryan and eric cantor. >> clayton: he was speaking and saying no, those won't be the individuals up. >> dave: i don't think we'll see that. >> clayton: fascinating. >> juliet: we'll see some severe weather, wild weather into the northeast right now. and people are still having last week's snow. as you can see, the plows are sitting by, getting ready to get out there, and throwing the salt on the ground and we're going to go to maria molina right now for an update on what's happening, maria? >> hey, good morning. good to see you. good morning, everyone, we have another snowstorm coming into the northeast just after on thursday 20 inches of snow across places of parts of upstate new york and new england and hit with that storm and another round. the good news for the system it's not forecasted to be anywhereas strong as last one was. it will be in later this morning and out by later this evening and through tonight. across portions of the southeast we have been dealing with some areas of heavy rain an
: two things, why did they harp on taxes so much if they were going to cave? >> eric: i don't know. >> bob: secondly, how bad is the riff in the republican party? >> eric: very bad. 100%. you are pointing it out. bad riff, especially when cantor and his group votes no and boehner and his group votes yes. house divided. a lot of conservatives watch, and they go to drug import. they put up a poll today should boehner step down or be replaced? i looked and it said 85% of the respondent said replace boehner. it's an issue. issue on the right. they have to address it. >> dana: when things don't feel like they are going well, are you satisfied with that particular person? then everyone says no. what is amazing to me of the fiscal cliff, it avoided all the real issues. president obama in his statement last night, one thing he said is we are not going to tax our way out of the entitlement spending problem. why have you not done anything for five years? now he says he is going to try to get more tax increases without being -- with a caucus that says we're not going to do anything on entitle
